state prc 58 28 a and place a burden on the city of san francisco. further, the state of california with the support of the individual and organizations that have an interest in historical and landscape preservation may be legally bound to defend the historical preservation to the detriment of san francisco's plans. the e-i-r makes mention of this and clearly states that there are significant impacts that would alter the historical nature of sharp park. the current designation of sharp park as historical presents severe legal challenges to the e-i-r as it now stands. a multi-million dollar plan to redevelop sharp park should only be considered through a separate planning process and not interfere with the natural area's program. i urge you to support the resolution and call it to the agenda as soon as possible. thank you. >> thank you. next speaker. >>> good afternoon. my name is rachel tom. i'm a second generation of san francisco. i have a bachelor's in environmental sustainability and 13 years of experience working with wildlife which includes the red legged frog and the san fran

. and this revenue funding is the primary source of funding for school districts in california. most school districts including ours. and the left of that chart is from fy-2007-08. and it show that is we received on per unit average daily attendance funding of 5776 per student. six years ago. and the top line, the blue line shows what the state should have funded per unit of ada to meet their statutory cost of living adjustments. that's based on a formula in statute. and it's representing what we should receive year to year. you see from 07-08 from that level of 5776, cola did increase each year. and in 12-13, the current fiscal year, we should receive $6,697 per unit of ada or student. and that has not happened. and what has happened is the orange line. that shows the actual. not inflation adjusted. just the actual amount of revenue funding we have received for each student. instead of going up and matching the blue line or even staying flat. matching the purple line. we have seen significant reductions shown by the orange line. we went from 5776 to 5326, a steep drop in the following year, 09-10. a

is victor car michael and i live in pacifica, california. my position is it makes no sense at all to merge these two studies. they are completely different entities. the sharp park redevelopment should be separated for two specific reasons. one is the golf course within the sharp park area is located right on top of a [speaker not understood] area. that complicates the e-i-r a great deal. [speaker not understood] prevents reclaiming the zone. e-i-r involved in studying the sharp park area, it needs to have a specific consideration. secondly, and of course, we all know that the sharp park area contains two endangered species. to merge these two studies together makes no sense at all. please, i urge you, urge the city council to please separate these two issues and i support the resolution. thank you. >> thank you. next speaker. >>> supervisors, good afternoon. i'm richard harris. i'm with the san francisco public golf alliance and i'm speaking on a procedural point rather than substance. we were this morning in a phone call with supervisor olague's staff. i was told that supervisor olague w

. thankfully the voters in the state of california pass that allowing us not to move to 10 furlough days. that would be tragic for the students. for me the school continues to be a priority. it's a priority for our district and our city and many families. and unfortunately we made i commitment to the class of 2014-15, not just sfusd but something as a city. and to allow our students in our first two classes not to graduate at these alarming numbers. and particularly in the african-american and latino community would be a travesty. and i am certain that the district here on out would be committed to reallocate that the classes after 14 and 15 would have a different structure and set up of the budget. that decreases every year unfortunately. so i am going to make a motion to move this forward with recommendation. >> thank you, a motion to move forward with recommendation. supervisor oblos. >> thank you, i will second this motion and speaking as someone who has worked in the school district as a counselor and has parents in the school district. has children in the school district and is a p

funding for students as a state and san francisco, within the state of california, and we're hard-pressed to make sure our schools are well funded. i believe whatever we can give to the school district is going to be utilized to help improve educational experiences. we have a good plan for how this is going to be used. i think it's a worthy plan, worthy services for youth that desperately need greater opportunity in life. i will be supporting this when it comes forward but there are so many intangibles that the school district provides us as a city that cannot be counted in any way. >> president chiu: supervisor kim. >> supervisor kim: i'll try to keep my comments brief. i want to say i find this conversation incredibly exciting and i'm glad we as a board are talking about what it needs to have a true city-school partnership. i think it's important for us as a city to have a discussion about what it costs to run schools. i had the opportunity to sit on the first citizens advisory committee when prop h was created in march of 2004. you know, we fully funded prop h as the voters had

it that for anyone in california with a family where the household is making up to 150,000 a year, that family would get a middle class reduction in to -- from our state universities. john pÉrez, one of the leading democrats in the state, has indicated that 150% of ami throughout california, even though it's cheaper to live elsewhere qualifies as a middle class. why would we ever say that these people, two teachers living together, two carpenters living together aren't in the middle class and that we're somehow unwilling to acknowledge that's the middle class. i don't understand that rationale and it sends a terrible message. now let's also look at how san francisco defines middle class. supervisor olague stated that the planning department says the middle class is 120 to 150% ami. it's not the planning department it's the housing element and the planning code. housing at 180% of af mi and above and defines middle class income housing as housing affordable to households making between 120 and 150% of median income. then we look at planning code section 4001 which defines middle income household as

. there are a few things to understand, that our graduation policy is aligned with the university of california requirements. and they require that students pass all courses with "c" or better. our requirements are that they pass with "d" or better. along with a-g, we are required for graduation requirements such as p.e. and our own requirements of college and career and health courses. when you look at students in high school you don't progress with age but by credits. no matter your age, you have to obtain credits. you don't become a 10th grader until you have 55 credits. and you don't graduate until you obtain 230. you can have credits but if they are not in a class with graduation requirements. you still won't graduate. if if you are missing what we call benchmark classes. core classes that are required for graduation. such as four years of english and two of math and sciences, etc., you will not graduate. so that context is important in terms of looking at our students and where they are towards graduation. our first group of students are students on track. they are a current group of juni
